Jefferson Memorial

Jefferson Memorial at Night
8 x 10 Acrylic on Masonite

This is another challenge painting from Karin Jurick at Different Strokes From Different Folks. She chose this scene of the Jefferson Memorial at Night for everyone to paint and I really enjoyed painting a night scene because I had never done that before. She told us to work from dark to light so I did. I started by toning my canvas with Payne's Gray which is really dark and went from there and it was really fun and different. You should check out her blog and see all the different paintings!

Hey Karen!
I just had the best time catching up on all of your GREAT paintings! You have been busy! I can't wait to hear about the workshop- you will love it! I've been studying a landscape painting book but there is nothing like a live demo to understand the process! Enjoy!! Hope all is good at HMS! :)

Thanks Leslie! I am so excited about the workshop. They said they have to have at least 7 sign up to make the class so I am praying for that, I really want to take some more classes/workshops. If you know of any let me know. Good to hear from you, I still enjoy getting to see Bailey, he is a sweetie :)

Hey- Well, Carole Foret's will always be the best workshop ever, but I could suggest Anne Blair Brown. She does wonderful plein air workshops in Nashville. She is a great teacher and a super person!!

Well Carole will never get rid of me! I am doing another workshop with her in April! Thanks for the suggestion, I will look into that, you're awesome!

It was not long cheap wow goldbefore some one knocked at wow gold for salethe house-door and called, open the door, dear children, your mother is here, and wow gold cheap has brought something back with her for each of you. But the little cheapest wow goldkids knew that it was the wolf, by the rough voice. We will fastgg not open the door, cried they, you are not our mother. She has a soft, pleasant voice, but your voice is rough, you are the wolf.

Then the wolf went World Of Warcraft Goldaway to a shopkeeper and bought himself a great lump of chalk, ate this and made mmogap his voice soft with it. The he came back, knocked at the door of the house, and igsky called, open the door, dear children, your mother is here and Cheapest Wow Goldhas brought something back with her for each of you.
